3 Things to Help Me with My Homework
The best way to start your homework is to figure out exactly what you need to do first. Know everything that you can about this assignment before actually writing it. You’ll be far better off than if you’d simply dived in head first. Keep reading for three steps on how to prepare for starting an assignment.
- Stay organized!
- Make an outline or rough draft.
- Rewriting is what makes an assignment great.
This first step shouldn’t ever be skipped. As boring as it may seem, trust me that this will save you so much time later on. The very first thing you need to do when starting any assignment is to put together everything you have relating to this assignment in one place. Whether this is on your computer or in a physical spot, it doesn’t matter. Take your instructions, teacher’s examples, suggestions, and class discussions, past related assignments, textbook chapters, other books or videos for reference material, students’ work from past years, and a list of your own ideas.
Once you have all these gathered together, it’s time to put them in their places. Have a pile or folder for instructions, one for source or reference materials, and one for ideas or discussion topics. This will enable you to know exactly where everything is so that as soon as you realize you need something, no matter what it is you’ll know where it is.
The next step is actually writing the assignment. Now that you have everything in its place and figured out, this should be a breeze! Just take all of your ideas, materials and examples and combine them together to make a great assignment. Don’t worry if this first draft isn’t as good as you’d thought; that’s why it’s called the first draft.
You’ve probably heard of the saying, “all good writing is in the rewriting”. This is true in that it doesn’t matter how rough the first draft is; you can always keep making it better. The editing is where your hard work and research really shows through and where you can impress your teacher as much as possible without coming off as bragging. Take the time to really make sure your work is error free and the best that you can do. Even spending a few extra minutes checking for spelling and typos makes the reading experience that much smoother for your grader.
